Monday on TV: The "How I Met Your Mother" roller coaster ride gets crazier

On the most recent original episode of How I Met Your Mother (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), Robin (Cobie Smulders) told Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) that she's pregnant.

Wow. Didn't see that coming.

Of course, at this point we don't know who the father is. Could be Barney, who slept with Robin not long ago. Could be Robin's boyfriend, Kevin (Kal Penn), who doesn't know about Barney and Robin.

Just when I thought that we could see where this season was going to end up - Barney marrying Robin - we get a curve ball. Which is one of the best things about "HIMYM."

You never know where it's going.

Tonight, there's more craziness involving Robin. And Marshall, who decorates the house on Long Island for Christmas.
